  • The main rule – do not use them for large datasets. Otherwise, it completely depends on the type of your application.

    Obviously, roaming settings can be used to share the same options across the devices. Games can use them for remembering current level and score. Business apps can store temporary data in roaming data folder, e.g. recently edited document. And so on, just think what kind of data users may want to have in sync for all devices.
